Around In Vegas

Getting around in Vegas, moving around on the Las Vegas Strip and Downtown.

You can take one of the Las Vegas taxis. Some taxis do not accept credit cards. It is against the law to flag down a taxicab in the streets of Las Vegas.

Rent a car from one of the Las Vegas car rentals if you are going to do some sightseeing.

You can rent Las Vegas limousines at an hourly rate, too. The price depends on the size of the limousine and amenities.

I am not going to quote you any prices for limousine services because prices change all the time. But, ask if the $5 Airport Fee is included in the price when you are reserving a limousine with pick-up at the airport.

Is the fee for Meet and Greet included, too?
The fee is usually $5 or $10.
Some services do not charge this fee.
It depends with which airline you are flying.

Is the fuel charge included?

Is gratuity included?

Otherwise, you might find yourself with a different price than you were quoted. If you want to keep the limousine longer than an hour, the price gets cheaper per hour as long as you meet the minimum required amount.
